Butterflies are a symbol of hope and peace. I could use both. I want to make a mobile for a baby's room with if different sizes and colors. I have variegated yarn that will really be pretty. These are so easy that I will have it done in no time at all.

I love these 3 minute crochet butterfly pattern. During the Spring, I bring out all my things butterfly and these will be a wonderful welcomed addition.

Adorable. These little cuties can be used to dress up almost anything. From apparel to home decor like pillows. Because of the little material needed and the amount of time it takes to complete, the possibilities are endless.

This is a cute and quick project that could be used for multiple things. These little butterflies would be perfect added on to a hat or a garment or even a bag. I think it would also look adorable to put a bunch on a little girl's bedroom walls or hung like a mobile.

Who doesnt need a flock of butterflies? I dont even know how many of these little quickies Ive made because Ive used them as appliqus, in craft projects, and on their own as jewelry. I tend to make my batches industrial style, i.e. work all the crochet parts first and then work the thread bodies later. If Im lucky, I can convince someone else to do that part so I can keep crocheting!

Spring has sprung any time of year with these fast little butterflies! Using a steel hook and embroidery floss make these in five different sizes. They can literally be used for any purpose. They work up fast and since you are using floss, the color selection is endless. Will brighten any day to make, give or receive these cuties.

These tiny little butterflies are too cute. There is an endless list of possibilities with what to do with these. They can be attached to almost anything. A good project also to use up some odds and ends pieces of yarn that are lying around the sewing room too. A great idea and a great project.

These look super easy to whip up-even kids could make them when they're just starting out on crochet. They're simple but colorful and fun. I'd love to make a bunch of these and sew them around a crocheted tote bag. It's also a great way to use up those little bits of yarn you have left that are not enough for a large project.

I am in love with these cute little butterflies. I love versatile patterns! How cute would these look, made with magnets? Imagine a rainbow of butterflies all over your refrigerator? They could be added to hats, totes, headbands, anywhere. What about making them into a garland to hang in a baby's room? So many ideas!

Wow Inukshuk84 I can see what you mean! You've got a great list of applications started in your comment. I think I'll try them on greeting cards and bookmarks. It's unique too that they're made from embroidery floss because of the many colors available. Added bonus is the videos they've included--what teacher's hearts!
